This splendid little antiQue canary glass ( or vaseline glass) salt / pepper shaker was made by both Northwood and Buckeye Glass companies at various times between 1888 - 1895 and is considered quite scarce. Harry Northwood held the patent for this speckled Art Glass formula while working at Buckeye Glass in Martins Ferry, Ohio as General Manager In 1888. This pattern called 'Reverse swirl, speckled' was also produced at Northwood Glass works later in 1888 (also in Martins Ferry, Ohio). Mr. Northwood was also associated with Model Flint Glass Co. in Findlay, Ohio and his 'Reverse swirl, speckled' art glass designs may have been produced there for a short time, as well! This sweet, Victorian salt shaker is 'mold-blown' 'canary' or 'vaseline' glass, with a swirl design, which is 'speckled' with white 'frit' and then 're-fired'. It glows a soft fluorescent yellow-green under uv blacklight, and measures 2 1/2 inches tall. In very good condition! The original metal top / lid does have wear consistent with age, and a small split on one side. Shown in Lechner's "Salt Shakers" Vol 3, page 37. An AwEsOmE hard-to-find Victorian art glass shaker!
